I don't know if *you* can fix this, I only know that I can't.
Everything inside the .svn dirs is Subversions territory, not TSVN's.

And what do you mean by "fix" this? It's not TSVN or Subversion that's
broken, but you didn't copy the working copy completely! Imagine the
answer from Microsoft if you would ask them to provide a workaround if
you copy only half of each word document and cut the second half off.
If you now think that's not the same, think again - you actually
*removed* a vital part of Subversions *internal* data structure (doesn't
matter if you think an empty folder is useless).
